I have been working on some cards, with the Thinking of you theme. I had to use 2 of my lili of the valley stamps, the bunny in the acorn and the fairy and the flowers. And a Penny Black stamp, that is just to darn cute. I loved coloring them all! All I think turned out pretty cute. I added stickles and some clear embossing ,prima flowers, buttons and faux stitching, and rhinestones ,that added a little fun to each one! (dont you just love the big button on the bunny card!?

I have made this 6x6 Vintage Scrapbook Album. A Family history album. Using Bo bunnys Timepiece papers. Thought i could make it a bit different then some of my other album, adding a few different things, so there is more room for pictures and journaling. 12 pages front to back.9 tags, a accordian album for lots of pictures and journaling. I used Graphics 45 (my favorite paper co!) flowers, they are fab. Adding wooden buttons, pearls, and little flat back glass marbles i added papers to. They are fabulous for flower centers, just for embellishment. Machine sewing through out. This item is already sold!!!! thanks for stopping by!!!

I downloaded this cute image from TeddyBo.com. Isnt she cute! I had this cool paper from Prima, Jack and Jill Collection. Thought Teddybea needed a branch to hang her swing from! I love love love how this turned out. She was so much fun to color! I sewed the stitches by hand. Added some stickles (of course....think everything needs a little stickles! lol) Inside, i used matching papers, and added a prima flower with a tiny yellow button. I didnt add any sentiment, as i guess i think that the card just didnt need one!
I will be posting another card and some new notepad holders hopefully tomorrow, need to retake some pictures...and im addicted to my promarkers...so you know ill be doing some more coloring!
Im also starting on a new album, i hope to get done in a few days, so ill be back to show you that as well.
Thanks for stopping by!

I received my lily of the valley stamps yesterday in the mail and i couldnt get them mounted fast enough to start stamping! I had to do up this image first, because it reminds me so much of my little girl Bailee Rose and her best friend Amanda, at her birthday party, and their tea party! I used pinks, browns and blue for this image with my promarkers. Adding a bit of clear embossing on the table and stools. I added some prima flowers and pink buttons, and a few lime green rhinestones to make the card pop! Love the sentiment , You're the cream in my coffee. Bailee and Amanda wonder if they were actually "twins" and just didnt know it! LOL Ill attach pic of my card and the 2 of them at their tea party. So much fun! enjoy!

I have made these two new cards today. One is a mo manning digital design, the little angel in the tea cup. Isnt she just so darn cute? I love her! I colored her with promarkers, added some clear embossing powder to the cup to make it look more like procelain. I added stickles to her wings, all fairies should have sparkly wings. Love the vintage flowers and the wooden buttons, to make it more vintage-e. If you noticed i took a tag and folded it into a tea bag shape and stamped 'best friends' on it. I added some string and attached it to the button on the flower above it. I love this card!!!!! might have to make a few more! just think the tea bag tag is sooooooooo fun!!!
The second card is a teddyb digital design. I again colored it with my new promarkers (thanks jude!!!) . I added some prima flowers and i colored up this wooden plug to look like a bee with vellum wings attached to a wire spiral! so fun. this card will have to be hand delivered ! I also added some stickles to the wings of the bear and the bee. Added my sentiment right on the images' paper.
Thanks for stopping by!

I decided it was time i make up a card with one of them i had colored! lol I also got a printer and now i can download digi stamps....so i HAD to buy the teddybo ones! and this mushroom guy is one of them.

I found this fabulous frame at the thrift store for .50 cents. It was a scratched up silver with a old cream faded mat. I made this chipboard heart, and covered it with terrifically tacky tape, then sprinkled on the martha stewart fine glitter, in the Lapis color. I added a K & Company 3D grand adheasions butterfly to the heart. I stamped and embossed with clear the Helen Keller stamp on a cream piece of cardstock and then stuck it to a piece of black glitter paper to make it pop! I covered the frame and the back ground with Paper Riverie Noir patterned paper. I love how it turned out.
